Tuesday's men's games:
Despite Tevin Andrews’ 30 points and Lavontae Thomas' 19, Virginia State (3-3) rallied for an 86-74 home win against Apprentice (7-5).
The Builders led 33-30 at halftime, but the Trojans quickly overtook them by shooting 63.6 percent in the second half.
Allen Harris paced VSU with 21 points. ...
Norfolk State’s upset bid barely fell short as host
NSU, though, was unable to capitalize on its few late possessions, and the Fighting Illini made their free throws late in the game to pull away.
Illinois came into the game first in the nation in 3-point field goals per game and 14th in 3-point shooting, hitting better than 40 percent from long range. The Illini, though, hit just 6-of-23 from 3-point range, as NSU's aggressive, man-to-man defense forced Illinois to create shots by going to the hoop or settling for mid-range jumpers.
The Spartans held Brandon Paul, Illinois' top scorer averaging nearly 20 points a game, to just 14 points on 3-of-10 shooting.
Freshman Rashid Gaston led the Spartans with 12 points and eight rebounds, while junior Pendarvis Williams scored 11 points, all in the first half.
